Choose to be civil
Dr. P. M. Forni, author of "Choosing Civility: The Twenty-five Rules of Considerate Conduct," will be the featured speaker Tuesday, April 21, 7 p.m. at the R. H. Stafford Branch Library, 8595 Central Park Place in Woodbury. Free tickets are available at library branches.
Forni teaches and directs "The Civility Initiative" at Johns Hopkins University. His premise is that modern society is structured in a way that actually encourages incivility; that going through life rude and angry can actually make you sick; and that everyone can improve the quality of their relationships and lives by choosing to be more considerate, courteous and polite.
He proposes 25 rules of considerate conduct to create a more respectful community.
